A court is a court to me so I also don't see the fuss.... non of us are attending IW, so it doesn't matter at all.

Carlos Berlocq, christ, no wonder Murray isn't on a big court.

If Murray loses a set to Berlocq, even on a slow hard court, I'll kiss Gangsta Murray's throbbing member.

When they made the schedule I think there was still possibility of it being Lu-Berlocq so obviously they did  not want that on court 1.   I don't care about the court anyway. at least Andy is on at a good time for me this time.

No it does not, but tournament owner is a massive Big 4 tard as well, his fav is Nadal, but he cares about all the top 4 and will do any thing to make sure things go in their favour.

Also, being realistic right now DJokovic, Fed and Nadal are all still bigger draws than Murray, hence why those three are on court 1.
Why.....Let's see Nadal coming back after a long layoff-story is can he get his ranking back up to where it was or higher, Nole because he is number 1, and Federer because he is on his way out.  Well that's okay, Andy just needs to get through his matches and not think that he is being slighted.  If he keeps playing well, he will have his turn.

This is today again already - not before 5pm on stadium 2 IW time so I think midnight UK time?
Just heard Andy on radio while typing - sounding fairly self-critical though reminding himself he's not played matches for 5 weeks and just wants to get better each match.   Sorry that Kei went out as I like him.  Know nothing about Berlocq other than clay specialist so look forward to that H2H Bev,
No rest for the wicked... I mean us and Andy!

I watch all the matches online, it is the only way for me. Because Andy is not American they don't show many of his matches on regular US TV.  I expect this evenings match to start around 8pm my time midnight in the UK.

doesnt matter which court at the mo...maybe QtrF and beyond but not yet. Djoko, Fed and Nadal are still bigger media & public draws than Andy. They have won considerably more trophies than Andy ...so Id say fair enuff.

Think Andy will win his match in straight sets.

I think they had to put Andy -DelPo-Djokovic on later in the day because the other guys all play tommorrow and Djokovic -Querrey is a biiger draw than murray -Berloq.

Andy had better win, would really like to see him put in a good pergformance tonight to shut up the haters.

midnight start is fine for me will have a nap and get up about 10.30 for Fed-Wawrinka methinks, see you all in a bit xx

So you think Murray is a bigger draw than all those 3?
In my heart and in all his fans hearts I believe he is the bigger draw, but lets face it, these tournaments are about money.  I believe they look at what players draw the biggest crowds and based on their data, put those who draw the highest number on the main courts during the popular times.  Andy gets that sometime, he was on the main court last night under the lights.   I have many Brit friends who didn't like Andy, had no faith in him, and turned to Rafa to root for.  This of course was the Andy prior to Ivan who was not always pleasant to watch play with all his rants and raves, bloody knuckles, bad words and such.  I think a lot of people keep waiting for this Andy to come back.  The now Andy is a subperb better and behaves wonderful on the court and is very lovable.  Andy is growing on people and the media and I truly believe that his time will come where he is given the same applause as the rest.  We may have to wait for Frauderer to retire.  Just my 2 cents.

Likelihood of this match being shown on my sky channel is about zero looking at the schedule Rolling Eyes so livescores at work it is.

Actually, tis an absolute impossibility!  No tennis coverage at all on ESPN for NZ today - champions league, champions league delayed, FA cup delayed fainting
